"happening now," capitol hill gridlock just days before a default deadline. right now there is no bipartisan teal on the table and no vote today on house speaker john boehner's plan to raise the debt ceiling. august 2nd is just six short days away, and that leaves the very real prospect of default or a credit downgrade. can washington make a deal? wendall goler, our senior thousands foreign affairs correspondent be live on the north lawn for us now. >> reporter: more tough news today from the congressional budget office which says both of the leading plans from republicans and democrats to cut the deficit and raise the debt ceiling fall short of what their authors claim. senate majority leader harry reid's plan would actually cut half a trillion less from the deficit than he says it would, house speaker john boehner's plan falls about $350 billion short. boehner has canceled plans for a vote on his proposal today and gone back to the drawing board, and since he has promis

you. jon: we still have debt deadlock on capitol hill with the default deadline just eight days away now. congressional leaders are still struggling to hammer out some kind of a deal, one that would raise the limit on our nation's credit card while cutting trillions of dollars in spending. house speaker john boehner may unveil his own bill today. harry reid said it would be a nonstarter. wendell goler is live on the north lawn with more. >> reporter: speaker boehner's plan would take the spending cuts agreed to before talks with vice joe biden broke down and raise the debt ceiling a little less than that. it would satisfy the speakers bottom line which is cutting spending more than the debt ceiling is raids but we'd have to go through this all over again by the end of the year. the speaker said yesterday it would solve the immediate crisis. >> there is going to be a two-stage process. it's not physically possible to do all of this in one step. having said that, chris, i know the president is worried about his next election, but my god shouldn't we be worried about the country? >> rep
morning. hi, everybody, i'm jenna lee. jon: and i'm jon scott. dramatic new developments in that debt standoff in washington, and we are all over them. president obama speaking just moments ago urging republicans and democrats to reach some kind of compromise. he's warning the u.s. will lose its top credit rating if it falls into an unprecedented default. jenna: and it could lose that rating anyway. that's something we've been hearing a lot this week, that despite some of the decisions made in d.c., we could still see a downgrade. now, the political standoff as we know it is escalating this hour. a senior gop official, a house aide, i should say, telling fox news that house republicans will pass their debt plan today. we thought that yesterday. we'll see if it happens today. a bill that senate democrats say is dead on arrival, though, as they move ahead with their own debt limit bill setting up a showdown vote really for this weekend. ahead of that host of your world, neil cavuto, is live on capitol hill with his observations about what's happening down there in d.c., neil. first of a

: meanwhile, arizona snort jon kyl, delivering the republican address and accusing the democrats to use the debt crisis to raise taxes instead of viewing it as an opportunity to rein in spending. >> unfortunately, after weeks of negotiations it became clear that democrats in washington did not view this crisis as an opportunity to rein in spending. instead, they saw it as an opportunity to impose huge tax increases on american families and small businesses. president obama is simply too committed to the european style of big government that his policies have set in motion. to democrats in washington, the answer isn't to cut spending, but to raise taxes and keep on spending. democrats claim they would only target the privileged few, but behind the scenes, they argue for much broader tax increases. >> jamie: now, we're keeping an eye on both the house and senate and fox is the place to be. you will not miss any of the action as this all moves forward. the senate is expected to vote early sunday morning to cut off debate on its own debt ceiling plans. keep it right here, kelly. >> kelly: a

potential spending cuts, potentially tax changes, as well. when you have republican leaders like jon kyl the arizona senator on fox news sunday, look, this is not going to end up with any major tax changes, tax rates are not going up, saying that. it's making people on the left feel like this is pre-cooked and it's going to be a lot of spending cuts and no real tax changes. as you know, the beginning of this week, we started last monday, president obama's whole message this was going to be a balanced approach, taxes as well as spending cuts. >> neil: i do know this, since you arrived at fox, we have a constitutional crisis, financial crisis but thank you very much.
